How Lena Got Her Grove Back!! Time to Catch Up, Talk GIVEAWAY & More!!
Guess who’s back and more pumped than ever! I am! Haha can I be pumped and drained all at once? Cause my goodness is your girl hella tired! I’ve missed all of your beautiful faces so much, I mean like how long has it been?
*cues the dramatic music*
It’s been a hot MONTH since my last post, which ironically enough was my six month’s bloggiversary. So, how have you dolls been? Be sure to comment below and let me know, especially the ones I haven’t had the pleasure of keeping up with on my Twitter.
I don’t think I can say this enough but again, it’s been a while and boy I can’t get over how much I’ve missed writing (and by writing I mean posts and not business proposals) *face palm* Where should I start first? I mean after all I really do feel like Stella getting her grove back as I sit parked in bed a lil before midnight. I’m totes ready to spill my guts on some fun things coming and to rant a bit on my absence – I promise I won’t make it too long and annoying.
First I’d like to thank those of you who haven’t unfollowed me on my little hiatus and those who are sat reading this and inspiring me to press full steam ahead! That’s right! I see you over there with that vibrant smile behind the keyboard.
Originally, I felt pretty bad not giving my blog and social media the attention it deserved but I’ve come to terms with it. I know this is all a part of the grand scheme of things, not just in the blogging world but in LIFE. I don’t think it’s not fair to yourself and the progress you’ve made, to give up. Yes, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and having loads of doubts lately…about blogging, about my personal life…about my future. I know I always preach positivity but we all have those bad days and it’s where we learn our strengths and level of resilience. Think of it this way…How can you embrace and appreciate the power of light if you haven’t battled through darkness?
So yes, blog views are meh, some of my future goals for my blog and social media are off and have you seen how much I’ve ducked in and out of Twitter lol? The best part about this is I’m okay with it all, I know it’ll be okay and it’s never too late to get back on track and reach new heights!
While away, I’ve been more swamped at work than ever. I have a couple new roles with my current position, aka we’re under staffed and I have to fill voids with the only benefit being a killer resume. I currently work in Business Development & Projects, now I get to juggle Marketing and Productions & Operations 🙂 Another positive in this is it’s allowing me to master more skills and take a leap on leadership. Also while I’ve been going through some trials I took time to keep playing with Photoshop and work on my art. See graphics below! Also, ya girl started using her Instagram!
Anyone who knows me well, knows I have a huge fascination with Disney!..which is why this project was super fun! I got to recreate an old drawing and make it digital while and I can’t say I’m mad at the outcome at all! Please share your thoughts in the comments and don’t be afraid to give opposing views, constructive feedback is encouraged! I also played around with some other pieces (you can check my portfolio gallery for updates) and due to the great feed back on Twitter I came up with an awesome GIVEAWAY!
In light of you dolls continuing to help me even through my trials and continuing to aid in me reaching a larger audience, I want to help you!
The new blogger who needs help with their header!
Or maybe an experience one who needs a revamp!
The small business owner who needs help with branding and graphics!
And creatives like writers who may need covers!
I want to help YOU and your endeavor! For my GIVEAWAY I’ll be randomly selecting two babes to assist along those lines. To enter please head over to my Twitter and retweet the pin tweet for a chance to enter!
If you wish to continue along your journey with me and have awesome chats or maybe need a little inspo you can catch me on any of my links below:
Until Next time,
Lena Out – Not for too long this time 😀
